[BUG?] Strange files showing up on my Notify list

Post by poehitman » Sun Aug 19, 2007 7:03 pm

This has been happening a lot since the last update. I've been getting notifications on my notify list saying a series has a new episode out. Except when you go to the page, "no group" is highlighted and there is no new file listed in the episode that it shows has a new file. Or more what happens more commonly lately, it says that there is a new file for episodes that haven't even been aired in Japan yet.

A good example of this is Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi. As of today, 8/19, only up to episode 6 has been released. But the "no group" section claims that there are files for ALL the episodes. That's impossible since episodes 7-12 haven't even aired yet. Almost every notification I have recieved in the past 2 days has been this "no group" file being added.

I would like to request that the notification feature be modified to where I can select it by subbing group within a series. So I am notified when a certain group releases an episode for a series. On the same note, I would also like you to modify the group notification to highlight what the group has just released. All it says now when you are notified is that the group released something, but if a group has done a lot of releases, the new one isn't highlighted.

can't say anything about the behaviour you described atm, might indeed be a bug.
however, if you're not looking for raw files, it would be easy to solve your problem. Simply select your prefered languages in your profile and enable "Notify only for files in my language (audio and subtitles)".
